R.D. Burman - The Man, The Music (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.226

To a nation fed on classical music, the advent of Rahul Dev Burman with his repertoire of Western beats was a godsend. RD revolutionized Hindi film music in the 1970s, and with his emphasis on rhythm and beats, this Pied Piper of Hindi film music had young India swinging to his tunes. At the same time, this genius proved his many detractors who criticized him for corrupting popular taste wrong by composing some of the most influential raga-based songs in Hindi cinema and showing an immense comfort with all kinds of music, including Indian folk. RD: The Man, The Music looks at the phenomenon called R.D. Burman and how he changed the way Indians perceived Hindi film music. Through anecdotes and trivia that went into the making of Pancham?s music ? the many innovations he introduced, like mixed rhythm patterns, piquant chords and sound mixing ? and through interactions with the musicians who were part of RD?s team, the authors create a fascinating portrait of a man who, through his music, continues to thrive, even fifteen years after his death.

Really insightful!!!!

My nephew wanted this book, so he asked me to get it for him. I bought the book and thought, before I give it to him, why not flip through its pages. I started, and I must say, could not stop until I was done with this. My nephew, as usual, was angry with me, but later when I explained to him he simply said, "so uncle you see, us, the new generation do know how to pay respect...."

Indeed they know that, and this book is a fantastic example of it. This book is must read if you are a music buff. If you are not, then also you can read it, without feeling bored. Personally, I hav...

Indeed they know that, and this book is a fantastic example of it. This book is must read if you are a music buff. If you are not, then also you can read it, without feeling bored. Personally, I have no musical training, but after reading this book, I started noticing and discovering fantastic sounds and effects that was created by "BOSS" . My musical ear is seasoned like that of a master now, thanks to this book.

I have asked my nephew, to get a new copy of this book. this one is for me ..... TAN TANA !!!!!

Amazing work of research

This book is an intensely researched book, the inspiration for which is one single person. A must read even for people who are not into the technically finer points of music, yet it beautifully describes the journey of this man. Also one gets an insight into the film and music cultures of the times. Strangely enough, it has not taken inputs from Asha Bhosle who could probably given more insights into the talents of this man. Overall, a balanced book by a couple of erudite worshippers of the man and his music.

Amazing book - must read for fans of Hindi film music

I absolutely loved this book. The amount of research that has gone into this book is amazing. yet it is written in a free-flowing, fun kind of way - giving the story of musicians in Bollywood who remain mostly in the background, and yet have given us so much wonderful music over the years. Highly recommended for old hindi music fans.
